The perfect action film. A simple plot (protagonists trying to outrun some extremely nasty antagonists) that doesn't pander to the audience. It's an onslaught of tension and visual fury that is unrelentingly entertaining. Smart female characters are to be found in a picture that doesn't feel the need to spell everything out for the audience. It's a world that feels lived in to the point where we just join in with the insanity without question.
BULL DURHAM is a film that has stuck with me since I first saw it in 1988 .
Recently upgrading my VHS copy to Blu-ray, I decided it was time to revisit this film and not only did I find it holds up, I think I may have even enjoyed it more. That may come from age because this is the kind of movie aimed at an adult audience that rarely gets made any more.
